Bangkok based Zeus Customs picked the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 for their "Prime Project". They had all of 45 days to transform the motorcycle in to a one-of-a-kind custom machine-the idea being displaying their work at the Bangkok Motor Show 2019. Zeus Customs had a choice between the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT.
Their workshop is divided into two rooms. One of the two were closed off for the Prime Project. And rightly so! They've turned the Interceptor 650 in to a piece of neo-retro art. The tank is simple but oozes class with gold highlights. These highlights extend all the way to the rear fender. The exhaust pipes look like art work from the Renaissance. And the foot-pegs are installed as rear mounts. There are minor changes to increase performance but the engine and transmission remain the same.
The custom motorcycle features stainless steel clams that hook on to the forks, a set of aluminium switches that stand out and give the machine a classic look. The headlights are re-scaled to 5.5-inches; the wheels have been blacked out with a matte finish. The custom Interceptor runs flat-track tyres. The turn signal indicators are brighter than the OEM parts on the motorcycle. The USP, undoubtedly is the speedometer. It has an old-school, pirate compass look to it. Very explorer!
Given the time Zeus Customs had to execute Project Prime, the lads nailed it and how! Zeus customs did the Prime Project in collaboration with Royal Enfield UK. Royal Enfield has been showing off custom versions of the machine at almost every international event.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a retro-styled motorcycle. Powered by a 270 degree, 648cc parallel-twin engine that produces 47bhp @ 7250rpm, and 52Nm of peak torque at 5250rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It is available in Orange Crush, Mark Three (Black), and Silver Spectre as standard. Baker Express (white and red) and Ravishing Red (red and black) are available at a premium.
What We Think Of Project Prime By Zeus Customs
Bloody 'ell! This is a gorgeous rendition of the RE Interceptor. We wonder why Royal Enfield gives little notice to custom builders in India. We have some cool dudes too!
